According to reports, JR has been dating the “The Flash” actress for some time. The romance caused a bit of controversy due to JR still being legally married to his wife Jewel Smith.
Candice posted a series of snaps on Instagram wearing Beyoncé’s new Ivy Park line. In the photo posted on Valentine’s Day, Candice posed with her dog writing, “Happy Valentines from me and Zoë. I swear she loves me! And I definitely love you!?❤️? #valentinesday”
JR quickly showed the post love by liking all three of her photos. He hasn’t been shy about leaving flirty emojis in her comments either.
The social media love comes after JR made amends with his estranged wife Jewel following cheating accusations. JR has been married to Jewel since 2016. They share 3 kids together.
After reports came out about JR dating Candice, Jewel posted a video of her praying for the two. In the clip, she says “Clearly there is a lot going on. You been sending it to me, DMing it to me … it’s a battle, hurdle to jump over … out there in the public.” Jewel even prayed for Candice asking God to mend her heart “for you to go out there and to seek a married man. I pray for JR and Candice.”
The NBA star was adamant he had not cheated on his wife and fiercely responded on social media. He claimed they had been separated for months. He fired back to Jewel’s video writing, “IG Ain’t A Place For Relationships!! But God Told Me To Tell Y’all I’ve Been Separated For Months. He Doesn’t Understand Why His Child Failed To Mention That… #ThatsAll.”
Recently, JR has been liking Candice’s social media posts, which makes it appear they are at least trying to work out their issues.
